At this point, we were hoping that we would have more information to share. Jess continues to do extremely well weathering the increased contractions. The biggest complaint at this time is discomfort with the catheter. According to Jess, "I would be sitting up smiling if I wasn't so ticked off with this stupid catheter." Still waiting for Dr. T to make an afternoon appearance and give us some more direction on the next step in this process.
In other news, Jess is STILL waiting to get an epidural. At this point, the contractions are consistently about 3 minutes apart and she is beginning to question whether or not this supposedly mythical epidural truly exists. Keep your fingers crossed that our nurses can work their magic and make an epidural appear in the very near future. Otherwise, turn on your local news station and sit back to watch the fireworks that have taken place at Memorial Hospital when a maniac pregnant woman runs rampant around the Labor and Delivery ward in search of drugs, Drugs, and more DRUGS!!!!
